NASA updates the media on Jan. 10 about the upcoming launch of the Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) scheduled for Feb. 11. A collaboration between NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey, LDCM will continue the Landsat Program's 40-year data record of monitoring Earth's landscapes from space. LDCM will expand and improve on that record with observations that advance a wide range of Earth sciences and contribute to the management of agriculture, water and forest resources.
